Bye, Bye Twinkies

Twinkie the Kid

The Twinkie has become such an iconic snack food that when she was first lady, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton included it in the millennium time capsule. But Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands says it’s going out of business, closing plants that make Twinkies and Wonder Bread.

18,500 workers are effected.

Although many kids across the county haven’t lost their taste for Twinkies, the cake invented in the 1930s, some moms have. During the 1980s and 1990s, Hostess lost market share as mothers recognized there were healthier lunchbox choices than carbohydrate-rich snack cakes and white bread.

If you must ride off into the sunset, do it with style and grace my little spongy friend. Thanks for all of the cream-filled memories.

What could possibly take the place of the Twinkie in your lunch box?
